This movie is wrong on so many levels...
...but it's awesome on so many levels, too. I have very mixed feelings
about Kissing Cousins. It threads on very thin ice, both morally and
emotionally. As the title suggests, the movie has cousins kissing in
it.That alone can deter or even disgust some people. On the other hand,
the acting is great, especially Rebecca Hazlewood who gives an
outstanding performance despite the lousy script.
The story itself is a risky venture into the taboos and sensitive parts
of today's relationships. Break-ups, friendships, old wounds, fears,
desires, misconceptions and forbidden love, it's all in there. It was
an awesome movie, it was progressing beautifully and...it just ended.
Yes, my main problem with Kissing Cousins: it's unfinished. I was
waiting for some epilogue, some moral lesson, some closure, but it
never comes. Poof, credits. I know it's left to our imagination what
happens after the "final" line is said in a movie, but there is no
"final" line here, something is missing.
The script is full of holes and unexplained, undetailed things. It's
like the movie is missing some scenes. The only thing saving this movie
from the gutter is the idea. It boldly goes where no big romance story
has gone before, but ultimately fails to deliver the final word. I'm
quite sorry about that. But if you want to see a great love-story,
watch it, you won't regret it..
finally a smart funny movie that hasn't been "done a million times"!
all the characters are super hilarious and the main girl totally smokin
hot. great movie. so glad i heard about it. if you're a fan of indie
movies, you'll love it. if you're all about goofy whacky comedies,
you'll love it. David Alan Grier and Jaleel White are awesome. I wonder
how they got those guys??? anyway, I'd recommend this movie to anyone.
and i really liked the way the Indian family was really just an all
American family who happen to be Indian. They celebrate Thanksgiving
and Christmas like everybody else, but they do it with a little eastern
flare. Very cool.
And I'll say it again... the girl in this movie is totally hot!.
